May 16, 2008 – The FDA cleared FUJI’s newest CR system, the FCR GO portable digital X-ray system, designed to provide remote users with all of the same functionality and image processing features available at the fixed technologist workstation and FCR digital X-ray cassette reader in the imaging department.
All of the image optimization and advanced image processing features of FUJI's Flash IIP are available at the portable console allowing for comprehensive image adjustment to be completed remotely, and images can be sent directly to PACS without additional intervention at another workstation.
Because the system accommodates wireless communication or hardwire connection to a facility's network, the patient worklist is always available from the RIS/HIS and images can be transmitted to PACS immediately following study completion for quicker interpretation. The system also offers Fuji's SpeedLink X-ray Control Software for a fully integrated interface between the portable X-ray generator and the FCR reader; this allows techniques to be set automatically according to the exam type.
FCR Go’s design is based on field research and is reportedly lightweight, durable, and does not require a tethered cable to interfere with positioning or patient comfort. The telescopic arm allows for easy positioning of the X-ray tube and can be located as low as 23 inches from the floor to accommodate a wide range of exams, according to the company.
